TAHOE TRUCKEE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
11603 Donner Pass Road
Tahoe Truckee Unified School District provides information for planned power outages which are commonly known as Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) and/or Public Safety Outage Management (PSOM) events. TTUSD has been notified that TTUSD's energy providers may turn off electricity throughout the school district when extreme fire danger conditions are forecast.
Dangerous conditions include:
Timing of a planned power outage?
- Red flag warnings
- Low humidity
- High winds
- Dry conditions
While these kinds of events can be unpredictable, our energy providers have committed to notifying the public as far in advance as possible. Please note that planned power outages could last as long as 24-48 hours! What does this mean for your child’s school day?
When we are notified in advance of an upcoming de-energization event, we will communicate this with you right away. You will receive an email and text message from your school’s principal if your child’s school is impacted by the outage or a district-wide message. If TTUSD knows there will not be power at a school on a given day, they will call it a “power day.” You will be notified the same way as TTUSD does with a snow day. Like snow days, power days will be added to the school year calendar and made up at the end of the school year.How will you be notified of alterations to school days?
In the event of a school closure, TTUSD will notify students, families, and staff with as much advance notice as possible. TTUSD will notify through several communication platforms: a robocall, email, text, and posts to our websites, social media accounts, and the TTUSD app.Update your Contacts
TTUSD must have current contact information for a parent, guardian, and emergency contact in their student information system so that they can notify you. Please contact your school’s office to update your contact information if it has changed.
